Sea Horses

Inspire Me Thursday this week offers us the prompt 'copy cat' as in 'the use of photocopies, image transfers, tracing patterns, repetitive images in your art.' I've gone for repetitive images using a rubber stamp of a seahorse. The image on the left is say 1970, the image on the right is say 2007.
The paper is reused office paper, the colours are pencil crayon.
More about seahorses and their conservation at The Seahorse Trust.
